The twisting guitar and gnarled vocal burrow themselves deep in to the marrow of the listener in the first of the eleven songs on the album (which is available on bandcamp) hooking the audience to the enveloping brooding ensuing collection of songs.

Their signature sound of throbbing bass, flirtatious guitar and husky vocal makes for a band who never need to raise the volume to raise the temperature.

In support of the release of the LP Elysian Fields play September warm up and launch shows in the USA followed by a tour taking in spots in France, Germany and Poland during October and one date in November.

The three track eponymous single which was released at the tail end of last month, available on bandcamp, (you are correct –  another email that I managed to get to open very late despite having had plenty of advanced notice, apologies to everyone) doesn’t ruffle the pressure waves as it slips out of the speakers in a lofi wave of plaintive emo.

Yet, despite its almost imperceptible presence – the mind still finds itself wound in contorted knots of paranoia long after the the ten minutes duration of the three songs have passed.

By way of an introduction – the opening track – Bad City.

Newly out of the block with only a handful of tracks to hear NGHT WLVS have already discovered a golden seam of creativity to mine.

Songs meld scathing commentary of societal iniquities with retrospective disco-soul electronica creating generous textures that tempt the audience both to the dance-floor and street protest.

By way of an introduction – Action.

The five track release (available on bandcamp) is all done and dusted in two hundred and ninety six seconds with the listener being minded of the delight that was The Damned of the ’70s as the theoretically irrelevant keyboard somehow becomes the fulcrum for the music.

The opening track, lasting precisely sixty seconds, is Born In The Mid To Late ’60s.

Levy & The Oaks – Another Night Out In Asbury – Audio

The US indie-rock trio Levy & The Oaks released the LP Sound Of The City yesterday.

Levy & The Oaks - Another Night Out In Asbury

Levy & The Oaks

Last featured in 2016, Levy & The Oaks have moved their brushes to a different medium with much of the album being of light textured indie-dance and far from their blues-rock derived earlier music.  That doesn’t mean to say they have completely drifted away and the latter end of the album is more dipped in the earlier paints, making the penultimate song Another Night Out In Asbury my pick of the release.

Sound of the City – EP – Levy and the Oaks is available on iTunes.*
